The TRIZ Journal is committed to the idea that by sharing information we will all learn more, faster and in more depth than if we each stand alone.
The TRIZ Journal is interested in publishing articles and/or case studies which explore or relate observations on the process of teaching and learning how to apply TRIZ. Particularly, we seek articles that provide specific ideas or experiences that business practitioners can immediately put to use. Articles can be as technical as the subject requires, but writers should consider that the readers of The TRIZ Journal are on all experience levels. We prefer articles that offer graphic elements or illustrations to help make issues clearer. While we do not pay for submissions, authors of articles receive the notoriety of being published on The TRIZ Journal, as well as the opportunity to share their professional experience and expertise.
